Top Ten Geekiest Hobbies

I saw this link on a Friends Friends page and thought I'd share it as it affects nearly all of you poor guys and girls in one way or another. Me, personally, I'm really doomed. I seem to have 4 or 5 of the geekiest hobbies. It'll be a wonder if I ever get laid again looking at this article!!!

DORKSTORM: THE ANNIHILATION (The Wave Magazine Feature Article)

(hehe..... I also liked the distinguishing characteristics of a RPGer :p)

Its good to have hope!
Im an 8/10 at one time or another. I substitute Everquest for any MMORPG though.

I have a wife, and I regularly have sex with her. And others. :)

Oooohhh...you know, I've never really done pain. I found it hurts. Now if you said you were getting your Klingon [rest of entry deleted due to reasons of good taste.]

I got about the same score, and still pulled a non-gamer.
I'm proud to be a nerd anyway.

Yet again the article assumes that anyone into Star Trek or LARP dresses like that all the time.
So yet again it was written by jock wannabes who do little more than sit in a pub or lie on a sofa all day watching sport.

Ooh, that turned into a rant,
what the hell though, these people annoy me.

I think you're getting the wrong end of the article. The only people who could have written this are 'geeks'. They just know too much about the various scenes and to even be aware of the different scenes and not just lumping many of them into the category shows awareness.

It's the sought of thing that many of us have thought about writing with tongues firmly in cheek, taking the piss out of the more 'geeky/extreme' sectors of our related hobbies.

I really enjoyed it in a 'Bluffers Guide' sorta way :D

LARPing in Germany is not more than an orgy, 1 German shagged 14 Woman at the wraeththu LARP. I think the LARP this is only in the US. in fact cometo think of it most of these groups in the UK are very differant.

I looked at the title and started to panic, then scored only 3/10, so let out an explosive sigh of relief :)
